History of the Gratwick Society
In 1900, the Gratwick family provided Dr. Roswell Park with an extraordinary gift of $25,000 to help establish what is known today as Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, America's first comprehensive cancer center. Today, the Gratwick name identifies a group of distinguished donors who make leadership gifts to Roswell Park in the same generous spirit as the Gratwick family.
